CellScale presents Collections – a gathering of publications from a researcher in their particular topic of interest that included one or more CellScale instruments. Collections showcases the depth of research that can be achieved with the instruments and their various applications.

Dr. Chung-Hao Lee is an Assistant Professor in the School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Oklahoma. One of his laboratory’s focuses is characterizing the mechanical, collagen fiber architectural, and microstructural properties of soft biological tissues, such as the heart valve leaflets and arterial tissues, and using this information to develop robust computer simulations for enhancing clinical decisions. Additionally, his group has recently begun exploring the application of shape memory polymers to unique clinical challenges, such as cerebral aneurysms. Here is a list of publications featuring the CellScale BioTester.
